DC Collage Artist Brianne Lanigan
Brianne Lanigan is a visual artist with a focus on surreal mixed media collage. She lives and works in the Washington D.C. area. She has had solo exhibitions during Art Basel Miami Art Week for three years with Superfine Art Fair, in addition to solos at art fairs in NYC and DC. Her cinematic work captures and evokes the wild spirit of dream worlds. Through the assemblage of these worlds, Lanigan reveals moments and truths from her own life with symbolic imagery. Lanigan captures the essence of movement and momentum in her art. Her surreal landscapes become a lush environment of self discovery for the viewer and artist alike.
The mystical, ethereal undertones that reveal themselves in Lanigan's art are a natural part of her process. Tackling powerful subjects such as love and hope, corruption and deception, and the survival of the human spirit require diving deep in order to create an experience on the canvas that viewers can find their own stories in. Employing mixed media has granted Lanigan the ability to be an astute observer of the meaning and significance of events and situations and to communicate these observations in her artworks.
